The viral story of HIV syringe in Recto turns out to be not true

SHARE:

Why the trending "Welcome to the HIV world" story could be bogus? Read how one netizen tries to debunk it.

We first saw the controversial statement in Facebook when a girl named Jerremiah Kriziah Bataller posted the story of HIV spreading in Recto just by using syringe last February 7 and today, we found another post claiming that there is no truth in this viral story.

Xave shared the post made by Jerremiah to contradict the content of the story. He first pointed out that this was an old myth started from the shoddy theatres near Quiapo and Recto.

He also pointed out that HIV cannot be detected immediately right after the syringe with virus splurged to the victim. It takes time. There is a window period. It can go anywhere from as early as 1 week up to 12 weeks (3 months) to have enough viral material to detect using different kinds of tests such as rapid tests, RNA tests, and PCR tests.

Lastly, he pointed out that UST Hospital does not conduct HIV tests. Upon checking Xave's social media account, we found out that he is studying at University of Santo Thomas. However, he said that RITM and its satellite clinics do offer free HIV rapid testing.

The rest of his latter post is composed of mere rants regarding this controversy.
